Celebrity chef Saby Gorai might not be in Chennai this Holi. But he did share one of his favourite Holi recipes with us to create at home. The culinary director of Dank, who has spent much of the past year straddling work in Delhi and Chennai says, “This traditional dessert is quite popular up North but I am giving you my take on it with a South Indian twist.”
